I was fortunate to come across Paul when he joined Espirt indoor rowing team. From the outset I was aware Paul had a great deal of knowledge as well as being an accomplished athlete. I messaged Paul with a query ref my nutrition. From this point forward Paul has been nothing but supportive and guiding. In nutrition training and general well being. Nothing is too much trouble . Paul is always positive upbeat and encouraging . I met Paul at an event we both attended and he is equally as genuine in person.
As a coach mentor or friend you will not meet anyone dedicated and passionate.

Paul has helped me immensely with my indoor rowing training in 2017. I was training hard for the British Indoor Rowing Championships and was anxious about my weight as I have to be at a certain figure for racing in the lightweight category. Paul really helped with finding the correct macros for my food plan and also certain supplements (informed sport) that helped towards my performance and recovery this allowed me to be able to train harder towards the races. It also was one of the factors that helped me win 2 golds in the masters ladies LWT 40-49 age category 2k and 500m for the second consecutive year!
Paul listens to you and is always on hand to give you guidance and advice, he is so generous in sharing his knowledge in all things nutritional. Thanks Paul I couldn’t have done what I did at the Championships without your input!

I’ve known Paul for about a year now, and I have benefited from gaining a huge amount of information from him during that time.
Paul’s approach to sharing knowledge is great, he uses various different methods (videos, written posts and info-graphics) and finds a way of making topics easy to understand. He has an expansive background in nutrition and fitness, along with lots of hands on experience of working with people with different levels of knowledge and abilities, and backs this up with up to date studies and references so I wholeheartedly trust any advice or information that he shares.
I’ve been fortunate to benefit from the Lift-Row-Eat-Grow coaching group for the last few months, and just recently have made use of the App. Both are great if you want to improve your nutrition/fitness, and/or learn to fuel yourself better as an athlete. Just recently I completed a challenge to row every day in January, covering over 500k and burning over 26,000 calories, and during the month Paul went out of his way to give me (free) advice on fuelling the challenge – advice which helped me stay strong and injury free throughout.
Paul has just recently started programming the training for Team ESPRIT indoor rowing team, so I’m really looking forward to making further progress under his watchful eye.
